Sometimes you just have to let go...and walk away.

It can feel excruciating, and take time to heal, but sometimes it's best to walk away from destructive family and friends who don't uplift, support or encourage you. Who gaslight you or play narcissistic games to achieve their end goal.

It can be a parent, partner, sibling, cousin or friend...

Whoever's holding you back, triggering you or making you feel less than you are worth, walk away.

It's time for you to flourish.

The pain will end and you will be in a much better place, even though it doesn't feel like it right now.

People can change if they truly want to, and perhaps this action will help jolt that person into becoming someone more deserving and understanding of your friendship and love.

I don't like Mondays. I just don't.
Not all Mondays, but most.

Cliché? Perhaps, but many people do struggle with Sundays, knowing that Mondays are just a few hours away.

I always try to be as kind as possible to myself on a Monday and if I can, I allow myself some "me" time. I make sure I schedule in something that makes me happy.

You don't always have do what everyone else does. Cope in your own way. No-one's healing looks the same. That's what makes us unique.

Take a minute or ten. Be still, breathe and just be with yourself. You know what's best for you. Listen to your mind and body and learn to trust your inner voice.
It's definitely okay to look after your own needs.

I saw this quote in a group post on Facebook, and it really resonated with me:

I believe my subconscious mind was aware of it somewhat, but my conscious mind never really registered it, until now. I was "never hard to love"..."just getting harder to manipule..."

What an extraordinary realisation and an immense feeling of freedom.

I am loveable and capable of loving and being loved. But I am much smarter at who I love and whom I allow to love me.

It's never too late to start doing the things that you dream about pursuing.

Sometimes we need to take a step back, dial it down and focus on what we've always wanted to do, but never make time for.

Of course it's not always possible to tackle all our aspirations at once, but make a list and decide on what's realistic, achievable and affordable at the time and go for it.

It's wonderful to dream, no matter where you are in your life's journey. Even better when you start making those dreams a reality.

Wow, make a whole day amazing?
Some days that seems easy and on others, impossible. Sometimes I feel just having an amazing 15 minutes a day is a great achievement, and that is more than okay!

We all have our own share of struggles to deal with and if you feel amazing in this minute, enjoy it and see if you can string a few of those together. Before you know it, you'll look back and say, what an amazing day!

Sometimes we forget that we're in charge of our own lives and that it's okay to make decisions based on how we feel in the moment..

We don't always have to make the super healthy choices. It's okay to let our hair down sometimes and to do what makes us feel happy.

It's important to remember not to let those days rule us either and that healthy is always the best option, but if you don't feel like an apple, lime, kale, cucumber smoothy today, go for it! Have what you want, guiltfree and without hesitation.

Sometimes I don't want to be brave, or strong, a warrior or a survivor.
Sometimes I just want to be...not me, not someone else, just be.
Part of nothing and part of everything, wrapped in my own cocoon.

And that is perfectly okay!

"Love" is such an impactfull word, filled with great emotion, and filled with nothing.
So can I, should I "love" myself, when it can mean so many different things to different people? In many cases, far more negative than positive.

I prefer the term, "getting to know myself. My "self". That individual deep inside of me. The one with all the unique thoughts, ideas and interpretations. The one whose voice you'll rarely hear. The one whose still making her way fully to the surface.

Can I "love" that "self"?

After more than 20 years, I can say that I like her. The "her" that is me. I admire, respect and cherish me. And that is definitely good enough. But do I love my "self". Do I have to love my "self"?

I believe I do. Because by truly loving my "self", I encompass all of the things I appreciate about me. I am still getting to know that part of me and I don't like everything about me, but I do love me, which has made such a huge difference in my life.

With my "self" love, I have discovered respect, admiration, growth, acceptance, responsibility, appreciation, fun, trust, freedom and so much more and I cannot wait to see what more there is to discover.

But it takes time. And if knowing yourself is all you feel you are capable of doing, then go for it! It's not what we call it that is important, it's what we learn from ourselves and how we use our new abilities that truly matter.

Depression can be deadly. It's not a choice and if you suffer from it, you'd understand it all too well.
Support those around you who suffer from it, learn about its debilitating effects and seek help.
Too often we are told that depression is a choice. It is not.
It's true, we can choose to think and feel happy, but not during periods of depression. Depression disrupts our normal way of thinking and feeling and is acknowledged as a serious mental health disorder.
Ask your GP for advice if you're able to, or ask family and friends to assist if you cannot do so yourself.
There are many safe ways to conquer depression. Never feel alone.
